|Court:||Court of Special Appeals of Maryland|
Circuit Court for Allegany County Case No. 01-K-15-016875
Fader, C.J., Leahy, Friedman, JJ.
Thaddeus Casimir Shortz argues that he received an illegal sentence because, he alleges, there were defects in jury harkening and polling at his trial. This claim falls squarely under the rule of Colvin v. State, 450 Md. 718, 728 (2016), which held that allegations of such defects are not cognizable on a motion to correct illegal sentence.
